    sc.radio&cd junk

    Joel aka russeller
    sc cd player in my sc. ( 1990 ) died last manth after much research I found that the barr code on my J B L system coaded out as a sony!
    the power suply is in the cd box and they cannot be repared or replaced .
    after more resraech I found that soney warned ford about this
    furure problem as there were just vending out to sony what J B L
    wanted.
    I see radios for sale all the tome BUT not thecd recever that has a key componet ( power suply that is not available .
    I was had car toys install a deck C D radio about $175
    that works with stock boosters ans speakers sounds bettewr than the old one
    KEEP your old stuff ( I let my CD box get awayam working on tracing it down ) if I cant find my old one I will will try to get an other one working or not .
    some one will come up with a fix and I can put stock parts back in ( the one I have now looks like a turd in a punch bole


    good luck

    Hey there,
    If you are looking for a factory cd player I have one. I also have the stock stereo cassette player. Both are from my 92 SC and worked just fine when I took them out less than 2 weeks ago to install an aftermarket cd player in one hole and a dvd player in the other. Id take about $50 for both or $25 each. Let me know if you are interesed.

    Stock SC Tape/CD

    Will they fit a 1990 SC console? I still have my CD player in place, but the head unit was on the fritz and would play out of whatever channel it wanted. I'd like to go back to stock because I miss my tape deck. I put in a Rockford Fosgate CD player because I had it and didn't want to spend a small fortune for a special head unit that could control a separate CD player. How much would it be for the shipping?

    Unreliable CD Players

    Hey everyone,

    I too have been bitten several times by the dreaded sub-standard Sony CD Players made for Ford so I took matters into my own hands and started repairing them myself. (Including those bloody power supplies!) Now I'm repairing a lot of units for others who want to keep their cars stock. I was an electronics GEEK in a past life so it's not too big of a deal. Burns me up that no one else will even look at these things anymore!
